Scott Mackenzie's lone goal of the game was the most significant one for the Princeton men's lacrosse team. The senior midfielder's blast from the right wing propelled the No. 8 Tigers to an 11-10 overtime win against No. 5 Johns Hopkins in the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday. The game-winning play occurred when the Blue Jays tried to double-team Tigers junior attackman Jack McBride. Standing at the left point, McBride (three goals, one assist)
